Romeo Travis was named MVP of the French League Finals after leading Le Mans to the title. He succeeded former Elan/Chalon guard Jeremy Nzeulie who won the honor in 2017.

Travis provided a diverse contribution to his team’s success by averaging 12.5 points (by shooting a solid 52.3% from the field), 4.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists through the five matches of the best-of-five series against Monaco.

In the decisive Game 5 held tonight, Travis scored 12 points, dished out three assists and grabbed two rebounds in 37 minutes. The veteran American forward was the only player from both teams that spent more than 30 minutes on the floor, along with teammate Justin Cobbs.

Le Mans won the series vs. Monaco 3-2 to celebrate the fifth ProA title in the history of the club. For Travis, this was the second championship and third overall title of his professional career, following the BIBL (Balkan International Professional League) trophy he won in 2012 with Hapoel Gilboa Galil and the 2016 French Cup trophy, which he won during his previous stint with Le Mans.
